Hello, we're encountering odd behavior when pasting text into the richTextFieldWithTables component.
If multiple lines of text (separated by line breaks) are pasted into an area with formatting enabled such as bold or italics, the text is inserted in reverse order. I've attached a video demonstrating this.
We're able to work around this by using the "Remove Font Style" button before pasting, but we're hoping other workarounds exist or a more permanent solution can be implemented. For reference, we're using plug-in version 1.12.0 on Appian 23.3.
Thanks for the v1.11.3 update. That resolved our 508 issue
Which kind of formats does not supports by this editor?
Our 508 team found that JAWS does not announce the label for this component correctly. Our label was "Message" and the 508 team expected JAWS to announce it as "Message edit contain text type in text". Instead, JAWS announced it as "Edit contain text type in text"
It seems like the label itself is missing from what JAWS reads
There's no limit, you can set it as high as you want. Just be careful to not set it too high if you're saving the data to process variables or the database.
The plugin just renders HTML and strips out non-supported formatting. You will have to write rules to convert stuff or remove blank boxes before sending it to the plugin.
There might be other plugins that meet your needs, you can search around, I'm not sure.
Whenever we ingest emails which have text embedded on the top of say a coloured background and a few images within the template ,viewing it in the this plugin is very very difficult , Images won't render and I will see blank boxes , and just Texts , also I will always see Content Exceeded Error , which wont' go away ,even say number of characters are just 100.Any solutions? or should we use some other plugins?
Would appreciate any possible solution for the question asked in below thread for Rich Text Editor:
